Environment issues go online in the Middle East

Arab Wide Web has introduced a channel for environment news and discussion on its site, that will be managed by Emirates Environmental Group.

The Emirates Environmental Group (EEG) has turned to new media to raise environmental awareness in the region. The Dubai-based organisation has launched a co-branded channel on Arab Wide Web (AWW) to promote environmentalist activities and information on the Internet.

The new channel,


, which will be managed by EEG, follows a growing trend for cyberactivism on the web, with many pressure groups establishing websites to allow them to offer up-to-date news on ecological issues, and create communities to discuss issues. The AWW channel will include e-cards and a voting facility for subjects of concern to the region.

“It is the goal of EEG to create the greatest possible awareness about environmental issues throughout the region, and we feel that our alliance with Arab Wide Web is an extremely exciting and positive step towards reaching that goal,” said Habiba Al Marashi, chairperson of EEG. “We greatly appreciate AWW’s gesture of providing us with the space to share our important news with interested visitors to this informative site.”

“The long-standing efforts of EEG for environmental awareness in this region remains an example to us all in the new millenium,” said Mirna Sleem, Marketing Manager, AWW. “This portal not only holds huge amount of updated information, it also represents the future of paperless, environmentally friendly information, available to anyone around the world at the press of a button.”
